GV II

South Pier. Part of the harbour improvements carried out 1803-1806 for Sir Lawrence Palk initially to the designs of Rennie but completed under the direction of Dr Henry Beake, a national authority on financial matters (Pevsner). Local grey limestone rubble. The South Pier projects east from Victoria Parade. HISTORY: Russell quotes from Beake's correspondence with the Palk solicitor, in which he was critical of Rennie's design and work: "badly planned, shamefully executed, with no proper super-intendence and no regard to the expense; but with great possible care to make it as neat as possible to the eye with a useless waste of labour". (Percy Russell: A History of Torquay: Torquay: 1960-: 74-77; The Buildings of England: Cherry B: Devon: London: 1989-: 854).
